Electric-vehicle startup Arrival SA surged after it said it’s in talks to raise capital to build and sell its products in the US. 

The company, which is primarily UK-based, also said it’s a step closer to operating so-called microfactories to produce battery-powered vans. The shares pared an early gain of as much as 17% on Friday to trade up 7.9% to 85 cents as of 9:42 a.m. in New York.
